Course Information

Viewing Lean in action at our state of the art manufacturing facility in North Wales is an integral part of this course. This course is therefore only available at our Deeside Engine Plant.

We normally start day 1 at 09:00 but it's an early breakfast on day 2 so that you can arrive at 07:30 to meet a Toyota Senior Manager and see how they setup for success. Day 1 runs until 17:00 after which instructors will meet you at your hotel for a meal at 18:30. On day two you will finish at 16:00. Agendas can be modified to suit client requirements.
